Manage & Buy Hedera (HBAR) Through Ledger Live


Things to know:

Your Ledger Live app has exciting new features! You can now easily and securely manage your Hedera (HBAR) in your Ledger Live app and buy HBAR in the “Buy” tab of your Ledger Live app*. 

Hedera is a proof-of-stake public network with fast transaction speed. It is carbon negative, has low fees and high security standards to prevent malicious attacks.

Ledger Live enables you to manage your digital assets from within the security of your Nano Hardware Wallet. You can manage Hedera (HBAR) through your Ledger Live app and secure them within your Ledger Nano X or Nano S Plus. Your digital assets are hack-proof, your Web3 experience seamless.

Hedera: a uniquely structured technology

Hedera is a crypto platform that depicts itself as “the most used, sustainable, enterprise-grade public network for the decentralized economy.” It seeks to serve as a public network where anyone can transact and deploy applications. It utilizes “the fast, fair and secure hashgraph consensus.”

HBAR is the native cryptocurrency of the Hedera network with a dual role within the public network. First, it fuels Hedera services, such as smart contracts, file storage and transactions. Second, it secures the network, since HBAR users can stake their tokens and maintain the integrity of the platform.

Hedera is the 34th largest digital asset in terms of market capitalization at the time of writing.

Manage your Hedera (HBAR) coins on Ledger Live!

Your Ledger Live app has an exciting new feature. 

From now on, you can buy, send and receive your HBAR coins directly with your Ledger Live app simply by creating your MyHbarWallet account using a Ledger device and then import it into Ledger Live. You can find more information here.

There’s no need for an additional wallet. It’s fast, seamless and secure.

Important note: due to the unique design of Hedera Hashgraph, you will only be able to add an Hedera account to Ledger Live if you already have an Hedera account ID associated with your Ledger device. If it’s not already the case, you can follow this simple tutorial to create your Hedera account.
